Bosnia-Herzegovina are a massive 8.00 in odds to cause an upset in Portugal

Press Release   •   Nov 14, 2011 12:56 GMT

Nothing could separate Portugal and Bosnia-Herzegovina in the first leg of their Euro 2012 play-off but now it is crunch time as the two countries battle it out for a place at the tournament in Poland and Ukraine next summer.

Portugal, with home advantage in the second leg, is 1.30 to qualify with online bookmaker Betclic while Bosnia are priced at 3.20 to qualify and a massive eight times the money to win on the night.

After a scoreless draw in the first leg Betclic have made Paulo Bentos’s side clear favourites for qualification at 1.30, while they are 1.40 to win on the night.

But Bosnia is far from out of the tie after not conceding an away goal. With Manchester City star Edin Dzeko in their side Bosnia have the capability to score and the Eastern Europeans are a dark-horse to create an upset.

Croatia has one foot in Euro 2012 after their 3-0 win away at Turkey and they are now huge favourites to qualify with Turkey 11 times the money outsiders to qualify.

Czech Republic also take a two goal lead into the second leg against Montenegro and the Czechs are 1.06 at Betclic to make it to Poland and Ukraine next summer.

Montenegro, who held England to two draws in qualifying are 7.5 times the money to overturn the deficit and qualify.

Elsewhere Ireland have all but guaranteed their place in the finals next summer after their excellent 4-0 win over Estonia in the first leg.

The bookies see nothing changing in the second leg and make Ireland 1.40 to get another win, while Estonia are eight times the money to pull off a shock result.
